Abstract

Due to the continuous development of sensor technology, Wireless Sensor Networks are rapidly growing and are expected to be applied to various applications. One of the most important factors in Wireless Sensor Networks is energy-efficient management of network resources. For this purpose, a lot of researches have been ongoing in the development of energy-efficient routing protocol. In this paper, a cluster head selection algorithm considering node density in addition to the cluster head selection algorithm of LEACH-C is proposed and simulated. This algorithm gives nearly the same computational speed compared to that of LEACH-C and shows improvement of network lifetime about 11% better than LEACH-C. The simulation result shows that consideration of density as well as distance between nodes in cluster head selection can be more energy-efficient than considering only the distance between nodes as LEACH-C in energy usage of Wireless Sensor Networks.
